Hyderabad: For students of Telangana Minorities Residential Educational Institutions Society (TMREIS) School Bahadurpura, it took just three days of training in robotics to unleash their creative side.
While a team of three students designed and made a robot, a student come up with robotic truck and another with a robotic car. The students have used minimal equipment and the projects were self-designed.
“We were given three-days of training in robotics. After the training programme, we used DC motors, LED lights and remote among other materials to design the robot. All this has been done just in a single day,” said Mohammed Sarfaraaz, student of TMR School-Bahadurpura, a team member which made TMREIS robot.
Another student from same school, S Pavan has come up with robotic truck. Taining for the students was imparted by the students of Muffakham Jah College of Engineering and Technology (MJCET).
The TMREIS has taken up a pilot project on imparting elementary robotics knowledge to class VII students of TMR schools in collaboration with the Robotic Centre of MJCET.
Top performing students in the training programme followed by test were awarded during a function organized here on Saturday. Speaking on the occasion, A.K. Khan, Advisor to Government on Minorities Affairs, applauded the talent shown by the TMR school students.
He said that the State government has allocated special budget towards the ‘T-Prime’ for encouraging minorities to take up entrepreneurship.
“The T-Prime is for budding entrepreneurs. The government will help financially, finding land and also loans. If you come up with project of cost Rs.3 crore, one-third of it will be given subsidy. If the banks charge 12 per cent interest on loans, nine per cent will be paid by the government and three per cent by the budding entrepreneurs. This project is taking off for the first time,” he said.
Mr. Khan stated that earlier Society had faced problems to filing up seats in the TMR schools. But now there is a good demand for schools, he said adding that more schools would be opened soon.
